    I have an "english cowboy", does that count? I dislike seeing men who dress as if they're into farming/horses/what have you, when they really have no idea what it's all about. Same goes for women who dress that way. My guy may not dress like the stereotypical cowboy all of the time, but he sure plays the part well IMHO. I'm not into the whole "pretty boy" thing. I like a man who plays his country music loud and proud, has no problem showing up in church Sunday mornings, willing to get his hands dirty and work dawn to dusk if that's what it takes, and on top of all that he cares for his horse(s) and ride on a regular basis ...and has no problem cuddling with his horse even if it's not the most manly thing That's the kind of cowboy I am into, and that's exactly the one I've got =)

So it's easy to see that while I remember my girlfriends really having a "thing" about seeing me working on a horse, they weren't all the enthusiastic about "loving up" on me at the end of the day. Not until I showered and changed. It was the idea and the look of there "man" out there being a "man" doing "manly" work, but at the end of the day.....get clean, put on some tight jeans, nice shirt, a clean hat (not the sweating, dirty one that you work in) and then they'll hang all over you and think how thrilling it is to have a "cowboy" for a boyfriend.
    I appreciate this! Most people only see the so called 'glamour' of it and not the reality it is. I've learned not to buy any light-coloured bed linens because after a long day of work I've come home to my cowboy passed out in bed before a shower and permanently dirt stained white sheets LOL.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this thread and many people have made interesting and thought provoking comments. I had breakfast with about a dozen ladies from our cattle sorting club this morning and I asked them their thoughts on cowboys. Here are our thoughts on the topic. We love the idea of a cowboy and seeing a nice looking man with tight jeans , western shirt and cowboy hat really takes our breath away (especially if he is holding the reins of a horse) but we want more than just eye candy. Bottom line is that we want a man who respects us and understands our love for and need to have horses in our lives. We have all watched friends go through heartbreaking divorces because they made poor choices based on a pretty package and a "cowboy dream", or married men who eventually got jealous and bitter because their wives spent so much time around horses.
    My husband is about as far from a cowboy as you could get. He is a small southern city boy.He understood before we ever married that horses would always be part of my life and bravely tried to share that with me. He took riding lessons and learned basic horsemanship. He doesnt really like horses and is scared of them, less than a week after he started riding his own horse he fell off and separated his shoulder. That was it for his adventures in riding or being a country boy lol, BUT he fully supports me in every crazy horsey idea I have. He never even raises an eyebrow when I say I need another sheet, halter, saddle,what have you, although I already have enough to open my own tack store. Bless his heart he is such an enabler!! When I was going through a rough patch from a very bad horse accident he spared no effort in finding the perfect horse for me and really pushed me into buying him. Two weeks ago I came back from a 5 day horse camping trip saying how awesome it would be to have a camper to put on my truck because it would be more comfortable than camping in a tent.(Did I mention he is a city boy and has no idea why people would want to go camping and rough it when they had a comfortable house to live in?) He immediately went to the computer and educated himself on all the different types of campers, worked out a budget so we can afford one, and lined up a few to see this weekend. Respect and caring for the other persons happiness is what really makes a relationship work. (Thats why there are several motorcycles in my yard, even though I am terrified every time he gets on one that he will get killed). If that respect, love and caring comes in a nicely filled out pair of jeans and a cowboy hat that is great but it sure doesn't have to.

    Not my type. I suppose that means I do like cowboys.
